Lightweight & Lacy Lollipop Summer Simple Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The swirls of a bright-colored lollipop are an iconic sign of summer fun. The Lollipop Summer Cardigan Crochet Pattern reflects the carefree summer days with its fun rings around the top yoke.

Throw in some bobble stitches and it’s perfect for a summer afternoon at the farmer’s market or fair. Don’t be fooled by the solid white yarn; this can easily have pops of color by adding rainbow buttons or a brightly colored undershirt. This wide neck cardigan is worked from top-down and in one piece. And if you love this one then you might also enjoy crocheting the Sagebrush Lindy Chain Crochet Sweater or the It's A Wrap Free Easy Crochet Pattern.
